Senator Marco Rubio said Tuesday that the second impeachment of former president Trump is driven by his political opponents’ desire for “vengeance” and dismissed the idea that they wanted to hold him accountable for the Capitol riot.

“Waste of time impeachment isn’t about accountability,” Rubio wrote in a tweet Tuesday morning.

“It’s about demands from vengeance from the radical left” as well as “a new ‘show’ for the ‘Political Entertainment Industry,'” the Florida Republican added.

On Sunday, Rubio called the effort to impeach Trump in order to bar him from running for office again “arrogant,” saying “voters get to decide” who is elected.
